Wheat Mall

Wheat Mall is a public art work that celebrates the legacies of agriculture and landscape architecture at the University of Maine.  The project proposes six separate plots of grain, totaling approximately 1.7 acres, be cultivated in the National Register Historic District of the University of Maine during the 2012 growing season.  Influenced by the landmark work of Frederick Law Olmstead Sr. and agriculture educator Ezekiel Holmes in Orono, Wheat Mall is the culmination of historic and present day research at Maine’s land grant institution.
